destabilizing factors in the middle east is what is going on in syria. the syrian -- there are a few -- not missiles but some explosions in the golan along the syrian/israeli border. is that also one of the approximate causes that's destabilizing not only what's going on in gaza but what may happen with hezbollah? >> i don't think so. i think that civil war has potential to spread -- it has potential to spread to turkey, to iraq, to jordan, not really to israel. i think that israel lobbed a few shells to warn them to stay away from the border. but no faction sees itself advantaged -- the other factions by getting israel involved. >> eliot: one of the more worrisome developments in the past week, in my mind has been that jordan which has been unfortunately besieged by several hundred thousand refugees from syria is also seeing some domestic violence with riots because of gas prices and jordan had been to a certain extent, the island of stability within the arab world. how do you assess that dynamic? >> that's highly dangerou

, for instance, to syria and iran for real support. but recently, of course, hamas has broken from iran. its offices in syria have been shuttered, and it has become very close to egypt, which is now under the leadership of mohamed morsi, a member of the muslim brotherhood. it also enjoys very close relations with qatar and turkey. so i followed these arab ministers around gaza today. they went to the shiffa hospital where many wounded are staying. and i spoke with several of them. many of them stressing one interesting point. that the arab spring has changed the way arab countries approach gaza. before countries like egypt were very wary of offending their american patrons and kept hamas at an arm's length. dealt with hamas, but it was well-known he did not like hamas at all, given its affiliations with the muslim brotherhood in egypt. some of these ministers telling me that they feel that the united states in this crisis has played a very passive role in trying to resolve this crisis. and what we're seeing is the emergence of other countries like turkey, egypt, qatar, in trying to address t
it drops below that. interesting. we've also got some big news coming out of syria. opposition groups have formally agreed to unite. they're now the syrian national coalition for opposition and revolutionary forces. the move allows for more international diplomatic recognition. more funding. and better military aid. now the group's stated goal is to crack down on president bashar al assad's government, and only accept a new government. >>> listen to this, democratic senator chuck schumer says he and republican lindsey graham will restart immigration reform talks that crumbled two years ago, and schumer believes they could get a deal done, and soon. >> graham and i are talking to our colleagues about this right now and i think we have a darn good chance using this blueprint to get something done this year. the republican party has learned that being anti-illegal -- anti-immigrant doesn't work for them politically and they know it. >> key provisions of the plan include a path to citizenship for those already in the u.s., and stronger border security. did you catch this video? some payback on

. syria will not show much of turkey. they are incapable of showing much of israel. the real issue is what is their view towards iran and what will be their goal? >> i don't think that they are in a position that they have much choice. other than taking action. the united states -- present obama has not had israel's accents in office. they continue to enrich uranium and get a nuclear weapon. they want to wipe israel off the face of the map. how can they not take this area sleep? >> the whole dynamic has changed with the sense of the muslim brotrhood in egypt. they are now running the show in egypt. the very first one meeting that the egyptian muslim brotherhood -- there is a new online fair to the israel people and the turks a couple of years ago started reaching out to the iranians, too. now you have the full encirclement of israel by iran. lou: as we look at this, now we turn to northern africa. the role of al qaeda. house intelligence and senate intelligence committees -- do you think they will be forthcoming? >> yes, i do. another network reporting that david atrios wants to testify, b
